Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

You can always use another cookie recipe, right?

These oatmeal cookies are the perfect combination of a slightly crisp outside, but a perfectly chewy middle. The addition of the chocolate bar really adds to the cookie, so don't skip it!

I might have had a couple for breakfast the morning after I made them... I justified it because of all the oatmeal!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

1 Cup Butter, softened
1 Cup White Sugar
1 Cup Light Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
1 1/2 tsp. Vanilla
2 Cups Flour
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Baking Powder
2 1/2 Cups Oatmeal
4 oz. Chocolate Candy Bar, cut into small pieces
12 oz. Milk Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine butter and sugars and mix until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and incorporate well. Add flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder,  and oatmeal. Stir in chocolate chips and candy bar chunks.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges start to get golden brown and the centers look set. Makes about 36 cookies.
